FIFA 23 will be the last title produced by EA and FIFA, with the full launch of the game coming on Friday, 30 September.
As ever, Ultimate Team will be where most fans spend their time, and there are plenty of changes to get used to.
EA has made some subtle changes to Career Mode, Pro Clubs, and VOLTA too, so there is something for all players this season.
Team of the Year COMING SOON
FIFA 23 will have gained a load of new players with it being gifted at Christmas, with Ultimate Team fans getting in on the action just in time!
That is because Team of the Year is fast approaching, with the annual event celebrating the best-performing players from the previous calendar year.
Huge ratings will come for the biggest stars, with Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi shoo-ins to feature.
FIFA 23 Full Review
There has been a lot of hype surrounding FIFA 23, especially with the uncertainty about what is to come next season.
EA has introduced several new features, but it is the new chemistry system that has sparked the most controversy.
The gameplay in FIFA 23 has certainly improved though, although as you would expect it has divided opinion among the FIFA community.
You can't please everyone, however, and all in all, we feel that EA has done a pretty good job in making FIFA fun, we just hope the gameplay is here to stay!
Take a look at our FIFA 23 Review.
FIFA 23 Release Date
FIFA 23 was fully released on Friday, 30 September.
World Cup DLC
It has arrived. The free World Cup DLC is available to download in FIFA 23.
All 32 teams are fully licensed in the game, as well as two new authentic stadiums that will host the final and semi-finals of the tournament.
Unfortunately for England fans, EA's simulation of the World Cup saw Argentina run out winners, with Lionel Messi playing a key role.
Find out all about the FIFA 23 World Cup DLC.
Players were able to access Ultimate Team before the official launch of the game via the FUT Web App.
Get a taste of all the changes in the trailer below:
This collaboration between two of the world’s largest entertainment brands has brought some footballing fan favourites to the game, celebrating their larger-than-life cult hero status alongside the amazing artists at Marvel.
Each FIFA World Cup FUT Hero also received a special illustrated FUT item at the launch of the World Cup game mode, with base versions of FUT Heroes being available at the launch of FIFA 23.
EA revealed a bunch of new features arriving in FIFA 23 Career Mode, with both Manager and Player Career appearing to receive the TLC they deserve.
From transfer analysts to the arrival of off-pitch activities in Player Career, EA has certainly pushed the boat out to make FIFA 23 Career Mode the best it can possibly be.
Player Career has certainly taken strides forward, but any fans of Manager Career are likely to be left feeling like they are still playing FIFA 22.
FIFA 23 Ratings
Rating week is now long gone, so we are fully aware that Lionel Messi has been downgraded to join the mere mortals of the footballing world.
Messi still sits at the top of the charts, but he is joined by Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski, and Kevin De Bruyne, who have all been given a 91 OVR in FIFA 23.
Take a deeper look into the top player ratings for:
- Premier League
- La Liga
- Ligue 1
- Serie A
- Top 25 Most Improved
- Best U21s
- All Five-Star Skillers
- Career Mode Highest Potential
- Best Passers
Another flashy trailer and pitch notes in the build-up to release came for the new Matchday Experience, detailing some of the new aesthetic changes that have arrived in the game.
FIFA 23 is set to bring one of the most immersive matchday experiences to date, with a host of changes making this year's game feel more real than ever before.
Cross-Play has finally come in FIFA 23, however, it isn't a simple matter, with only certain game modes gaining it, and different combinations of what consoles are compatible in differing situations.

VOLTA Football is still the new toy in the box, so we don’t expect any new game modes to arrive any time soon.
Ultimate Team will remain the main attraction as that is EA’s big money-spinner, so expect plenty of work to go into the most popular and lucrative game mode.
Career Mode received a huge overhaul in FIFA 22, so don’t expect massive changes in the next game as EA will look to clean up any loose ends rather than adding lots of new features.
As ever, Pro Clubs will remain a sociable and fun game mode, so we could see something new and exciting there.
